    As cool a First Lady as she seems, if you were a pastry chef with a flair for French baking -- think lots of cream and butter and tasty "bad stuff" -- creating magical desserts for uber health-conscious Michelle Obama might not be the ideal job for you. After serving as executive White House pastry chef since he was hired by Laura Bush in 2007, Bill Yosses is stepping down from his position, and everyone -- including Bill -- blames Michelle for his career change.

    What to do with the leftovers? It's a question that haunts many a family cook. How can you possibly use the remaining one and a half servings of mashed potatoes -- besides scooping it into the dog's dish? Well, cookbook author Chef Keith is here with some appetizing ideas. How about making mashed potato ice cream cones? Yum, right? Or ... no? That's just one of the weird recipes a fake prankster chef demonstrated on morning news shows all over the Midwest. And he got away with it! You have to see the rest of Chef Keith's (shudder) brilliantly hideous fake kitchen tips.

    Separated at birth?Oh Paula! After announcing that she's ready for her big comeback, Paula Deen compared herself to gay football player Michael Sam. You know, the MVP college athlete who bravely came out before the NFL draft picks? She says they're facing the same struggle. And that makes all kinds of sense. I know whenever I think of a white celeb chef who's been accused of racism and of promoting unhealthy food while keeping her diabetes a secret up until she signs an endorsement deal with an expensive diabetes medication (big breath), I DEFINITELY THINK: BLACK GAY FOOTBALL PLAYER.

    Oh Paula. Paula Paula Paula. Sigh. We're real happy about your new restaurant in Tennessee, but this ain't gonna work, honey. Slide a chair on next to me and let's discuss over some unsweetened iced tea why now is not the time for you to come out as a black gay football player.

    Inspired by an Asian recipe, Hudson Valley based Chef Ryan McClintock brought this green bean dish to the Italian side with a fresh herbaceous handmade aioli. Aioli is basically the best mayonnaise you've ever had -- with a twist. Pair the warm green beans with salt cured radishes for a bitter and sharp combination. Once the aioli is added, this makes a great vegetable dish or starter.  

    You can taste Ryan's dishes at the highly regarded farm to table restaurant Global Palate in West Park, NY, where he is Sous Chef. Here is the recipe for these delicious warm blistered green beans and salt cured radishes with a cool aioli you'll want to put on everything.

    Call me crazy, but I have a tough time believing any claims made by a man who publicly choked his wife -- which is why I'm rolling my eyes, big time, at the latest allegations against star chef and all-around awesome lady Nigella Lawson. Not that Lawson's psychopath ex-husband/gazillionaire Charles Saatchiwas the one to make the original allegations this time, but he did say he believed them -- and the actual accusers are equally less-than-credible sources. Here's the deal: Lawson and Saatchi's former personal assistants, Elisabetta and Francesca Grillo, are being charged with fraud for allegedly "misappropriating" over $480,000 of Saatchi’s money and spending it on super-luxe vacations, clothes and more. But guess what? They've got a perfectly "reasonable" explanation (of course).

    Ever wonder why most cat-burglars are pictured wearing all black? They dress inconspicuously to escape notice and evade capture. Clearly somebody forgot to give one Chicago-based thief this bit of helpful advice. He decided it was in his best interest to wear a stripey-sweater while getting his thievery on. Little did he know one local chef, Jason Chan, was going to issue him a very serious beat-down.

    Isn't it sort of a thing that dude-chefs have a lot of aggression? I mean, would you ever try to steal from Gordon Ramsay? Absolutely not. Because he would end your life and keep a piece of your scalp in the folds of his forehead skin as a warning to all his enemies.

    When you think 'zombie apocalypse,' you probably don't think 'delicious grilled pizza.' Because that would be insane. A rational person would be more focused on sharpening any/all weapons that they acquire. Luckily, thanks to D.B. Walker, the "chef" behind the infamous 50 Shades of Chicken cookbook, we can now do both!

    In The Snacking Dead, the hilarious send-up of everybody's favorite zombie-drama, The Walking Dead, you can learn how to harvest fresh herbs while still kicking some major zombie butt. I think we can all agree that in these uncertain times, that's pretty reassuring. Plus, I hate the idea of giving up dessert AND having to escape the clutches of the undead.

    You know you want to go out for dinner, that's the easy part. Now the tough questions -- where do you want to go? What are you in the mood for? And what are you going to pick once you've got a menu in hand? A person can get overwhelmed with options when it comes to going out to eat. There are so many restaurants offering so many different types of food. But if you know where you to look, you can find places that make it their mission to do one thing and do it well.

    This morning Paula Deen made the Today appearance she skipped out on last Friday, addressing allegations of racism that've caused her empire to crumble around her. The celebrechef, who was recently fired from Food Network, opened up with Matt Lauer disputing discrimination claims, saying she believes that "every creature on this Earth, every one of God's creatures, was created equal."

    But from there, the Paula Deen Today interview got straight up upsetting. Not just to see her upset, though, but to hear a few of the things coming out of her mouth during the 13-minute segment. For the record, I can't even remember the last time Today gave 13 minutes to anyone.

    Let's take a look at 5 of Paula's most unapologetic lines, here:

    Paula Deen is out at the Food Network. The channel is not renewing the Southern cooking queen's contract and many are saying good riddance, especially after seeing Deen's lame apology video. When news came out Wednesday that the celeb chef admitted in court depositions that she had used the N-word as a joke (!) and supposedly planned a "slave theme party," fans and non-fans alike were disgusted. The butter really hit the pan when Deen's "apology" video fell a little, uh, short. The Food Network is blaming Deen's PR team for that. But still. OMG.

    It doesn't look like anyone is going to be forgiving Deen anytime soon and Twitter has gone wild mocking Deen with racially charged jokes and the hashtag #paulasbestdishes. A sampling of dish suggestions: Lynchin' Lemonade; Mulatto Marble Cake; Back Of The Bus Biscuits; Fresh Picked Cotton Candy; South shall rise again Soufflé. Some creative new "Paula Deen products" and other photos are also circulating:
